Valla Library is housed in Studenthuset, the primary meeting place on campus. In Studenthuset, there are approximately 1000 study places in total, including individual study seats, group study spaces, group activity rooms, and a quiet reading room on the fourth floor. The vision behind Studenthuset is to provide all student services in one place.
Valla Library’s collections reflect the wide scope of educational and research subjects at LiU’s largest campus and comprise humanities, behavioural science, social sciences, technology, mathematics and science.
All floors in Studenthuset may be reached by lifts. The key places in the library are the enquiry desk and reference copies of textbooks collection on the third floor, and the library stacks with the bulk of the library’s book collection on the first floor (one floor below ground level).
Use the self-return machine by the enquiry desk on the third floor to return your books. Library books can also be placed in the book drop, marked "Library Book Return," outside the southern façade of Studenthuset (close to the water fountain and facing Key building).
Valla Library is open to the public. Members of the public have access to Studenthuset during the library’s opening hours. LiU students and employees with a valid LiU card have access to Studenthuset’s study seats also outside of the library’s opening hours.
